How hot was today? Pretty hot.

Today was so hot, even the flies stayed in the shade.

Today was so hot, even my eyeballs felt hot.

Today was so hot, I had to wear full corporate clothing (including stockings).  The first thing I did when I arrived home was to take all my clothes off.

Today was so hot, driving around in a car was very appealing.  The air-conditioning was turned up to "high".

Today was so hot, people commented that being on a train was the best place to be today.  The air-conditioning was icy cold.  

Today was so hot, I went to the movies to see something I wasn't terribly interested in.  It turned out I didn't enjoy it all.  The air-conditioning was the best part.  (I saw "Titanic" when it first came out because it was a really hot day in Brisbane and I wanted the longest possible film to make sure I maximised air-conditioning bang for my buck.  It turned out to be a good choice because there was a lot of ice to look at.)

Today was so hot, my bed felt like it was on fire.

Today was so hot, I didn't mind that I had no hot water.  A cold shower was just fine.

Today was so hot, I just dunked a tea bag right in my water bottle and I had tea.  No need for a kettle.

Today was so hot.  39.6 degress Celsius at 6:11pm.  

Tonight is so hot, I'll have to have my fourth shower of the day and cuddle an ice block.

Tonight is so hot, I wish I had a garden I could sleep in, or a teleporter to take me to Iceland for the night, or an air-conditioner that didn't burn brown coal to use it.  

Tonight is so hot, I wish I had a walk in refrigerator that I could sleep in.

Tonight is so hot. 

Tonight is

Tonight hot. so hot.

Twenty-seven degrees Celsius at 11:20pm.  

It could be hotter.

  1. WOW that is hot! Hope today is cooler cause I couldn't imagine trying to fall asleep in that heat!

  2. Cooler today! About 28, but humid. A welcome change from yesterday's oven blast. I slept surprisingly well. I think because I was really tired!
